    When will the narrators for 2023 Candlelight Processional be announced?

    Hi there, Helen!  Welcome to planDisney!

    Any time is a good time for a trip to Walt Disney World Resort, but there's something extra magical about a visit during the holiday season!  One of my favorite holiday events at Walt Disney World Resort is the Candlelight Processional.  In this beautiful show, a celebrity narrator tells the story of Christmas, accompanied by the music of an orchestra and choir.  It's a gorgeous, moving experience that's not to be missed.

    For many years, I wanted to see Neil Patrick Harris narrate the Candlelight Processional at EPCOT.  Last year, I was lucky enough to be visiting at the same time that he was scheduled to narrate.  Attending that particular performance of the Candlelight Processional is definitely one of my favorite Walt Disney World Resort memories.  However, that being said, no matter who you have as a celebrity narrator, experiencing the Candlelight Processional is always memorable.

    The list of celebrity narrators for the 2023 Candlelight Processional has not yet been announced.  While I haven't heard for certain when this information will be released, I would expect that we won't have to wait too much longer.  Be sure to follow the Disney Parks Blog for this announcement and lots of other important Disney Parks news.

    Since the Candlelight Processional is a popular event and seats in the theater fill quickly, I highly recommend booking a Candlelight Processional Dining Package.  These packages include a meal at one of several EPCOT restaurants, as well as a guaranteed seat at a performance of the Candlelight Processional later that same evening.

    Helen, I hope you have the most magical time celebrating the holiday season at Walt Disney World Resort!  If we can help you with any other questions, please stop by planDisney again any time.  See ya real soon!
